About Me

Beginning in August 2018, Alexandria Ruble will be Assistant Professor of European History at Spring Hill College in Mobile, AL. She received her Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2017. She received her M.A. in History from UNC-Chapel Hill and her bachelor’s degree in History from Christopher Newport University in Newport News, VA.

Her expertise is in post-1945 German and European history, women’s and gender history, comparative history/histoire croisee, and global history. She is currently working on a book manuscript tentatively titled Protecting Families, Dividing States: The Struggle to Reform Family Law in East and West Germany, 1945–1976. She has an article titled “Creating Post-Fascist Families: Reforming Gender Roles in East and West Germany in the 1950s” under review at the academic journal Central European History. Other forthcoming publications include chapters in the edited volumes A History of the Family in Modern Germany, edited by Lisa Pine for Bloomsbury Academic, and Gendering Post-1945 German History: Entanglements, edited by Karen Hagemann, Donna Harsch, and Friederike Brühöfener for Berghahn Books, both to be published in 2018.

Her work has been supported by the Social Science Research Council, the Fulbright US Student Program, the German Academic Exchange Service, the Central European History Society, the UNC Graduate School, the Ruhr University Bochum, and the American Council on Germany.
